A new website!

We are beyond excited to have a brand new website for Donovans. We hope you love it as much as we do. We have come a long way from our original website that was created 21 years ago! Yes. We are serious. But we believe it was worth the wait. The website is better than we could ever have imagined.

Donovans website and social media platforms are places for us to connect with you outside the restaurant. We encourage you to take a look around and enjoy the stories we love to share. Here is a roundup of the new website features:

  1. I cant praise Donovans enough…Yesterday I dined there with 5 other people two of whom I haven’t seen for over 40 years, both men owned many restaurants in Perth but are now retired and enjoying what life has to offer. I wanted to share my previously lovely experiences that I have had in the past with another friend who lives in Cambodia and when we can afford it and she is in Australia we always visit Donovans. Yesterday I was so happy that I decided we could all meet and have lunch at Donovans, the service was excellent, the meal was exceptional, the wine just right, and like comments before it feels like coming home. Congratulations on keeping the wonderful feeling that this restaurant keeps on giving, and for choosing such wonderful staff to keep everyone happy. Two ladies even shared their Bombe Alaska with us…..
